Andrew Jones Pies fined £375k

first_imgAndrew Jones Pies has been fined a total of £375k, after being found guilty of health and safety breaches, following the death of an employee in a gas explosion at its factory.The Huddersfield firm, which is currently in administration, was fined £250,000 for safety offences, and ordered pay £124,896 in costs, by the judge at York Crown Court.On 10 April 2009, 37-year-old baker David Cole was killed instantly after an explosion caused part of the roof to fall at the factory in Huddersfield, starting a fire. Another worker was also seriously injured.The judge said the company has “failed dismally” and although he understood the company was not in a position to pay the fines and costs, his judgement reflected the level of failings by the company, according to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).The explosion at Andrew Jones Pies in Old Leeds Road, Huddersfield, happened after baker David Cole made apparent repeated attempts to light the 30-year-old oven, unaware that more and more gas was building up to a critical flashpoint inside the baking chamber.The blast blew the oven door off its hinges, and part of the roof of the factory collapsed.The HSE found the company’s procedures for operating the ovens were inadequate and informal, and sufficient instructions for using them had not been given.It was also discovered that an explosion relief panel on the back of the oven, which should have safely vented excess pressure, had at some time been rigidly fixed in place, but this may have pre-dated the firm’s ownership of the ovens.Andrew Jones Pies, now registered with the administrator in Ossett, near Wakefield, was found guilty of a breach of the Dangerous Substances and Explosives Atmospheres Regulations 2002 between 26 April 2007 and 10 April 2009.The firm was also found guilty of two breaches of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 between the same dates.last_img read more

Business School announces Tata gift; two initiatives

first_imgHoping to spur innovation at Harvard and in the surrounding community while providing a spark for the economy, the Harvard Business School (HBS) announced plans Thursday (Oct. 14) for two building projects, one aimed at training new global leaders and the other at fostering entrepreneurship.At an afternoon press conference on the HBS campus, Dean Nitin Nohria announced that the Tata Companies, the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, and the Tata Education and Development Trust, which are philanthropic arms of the Tata Group, India’s largest company, are donating $50 million to the School.The gift, the largest from an international donor in the School’s history, will fund a new HBS facility to support the School’s broad range of executive education programs.“Ratan Tata knows firsthand the transformative educational opportunities offered through Harvard Business School’s executive education programs,” said Harvard President Drew Faust. “Thanks to this generous gift, HBS will be able to expand its already robust offerings in executive education, deepening ties with leaders across the country and around the globe.”Calling it a privilege and a pleasure to “give back to Harvard a little bit of what it gave to me,” Ratan Tata, chairman of Tata Sons Ltd., said he hoped the new facility would both encourage and inspire future leaders to take advantage of the executive education offerings at HBS.Tata attended the Advanced Management Program in 1975, one of three executive leadership programs offered by HBS.Nohria said Tata’s generous gift offers HBS the opportunity for its pioneering executive education program to take an important “step forward.”Founded in 1868, the Tata Group comprises more than 90 companies in seven business sectors: communications and information technology; engineering; materials; services; energy; consumer products; and chemicals. Known for its innovative philosophy, the international corporation has created pioneering innovations like the new Tata Nano, a $2,500, two-cylinder car that seats four and gets 55 miles to the gallon.Officials hope to break ground next spring for the new academic and residential building, to be named Tata Hall, with completion scheduled for the fall of 2013. The building will be situated on the parcel in front of Kresge Hall, facing Soldiers Field Road.Additionally, Nohria announced creation of the first-of-its-kind innovation center in Allston, a vital resource to help stimulate collaborative creativity and entrepreneurship across the University’s Schools, at HBS, and throughout the Boston community.“This will be an opportunity for all of Harvard to come together,” said Nohria, to collaborate in “this new spirit of one Harvard.” Nohria said the new lab and the ventures it inspires will “become an important part of the innovation engine that Boston needs to be to remain a great city.”Funded by HBS, the Harvard Innovation Lab (Hi-Lab) is scheduled to open in the fall of 2011 on Western Avenue in the Allston building that formerly housed public broadcaster WGBH.In the facility’s first phase, the site will open to undergraduate and graduate students from across the University, providing student teams working on their ventures with study space, along with access to and support from entrepreneurs-in-residence, faculty, and administrators. It also will offer entrepreneurship and innovation programming.The second phase of the launch will include collaborations involving the lab, small businesses, and local entrepreneurs.Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, who has made innovation a hallmark of his fifth term in office and recently backed creating an “innovation district” along the South Boston waterfront to spur business development, praised Harvard’s new initiatives as important drivers of the economy.Such projects, he said, help with economic momentum by generating jobs, reinvigorating Allston, and helping Boston to “build on its status as a leader in the global economy.”Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino (standing at podium) joined Harvard in announcing the University’s first lab for innovation and entrepreneurship, which will open in fall 2011 in Allston. Harvard Business School (HBS) also announced a $50 million gift from Ratan Tata (center), the chairman of Tata Sons Ltd., which will support a new executive education building. “Our goal is to drive innovation by connecting entrepreneurial teams, not only across the Charles River, but nationally and internationally, in an interdisciplinary approach to creating viable business ventures and social initiatives,” said HBS Dean Nitin Nohria (right).

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal dealt with anxiety before taking Swansea win

first_img Arsenal coasted to a 3-0 victory after Olivier Giroud had opened the scoring soon after the restart – the 2,000th goal of Wenger’s 19-year reign – but it was a different story in the first period as Swansea threatened to inflict more agony on the Gunners. Swansea beat Arsenal home and away last season and Garry Monk’s men should have taken the lead when Bafetimbi Gomis was put through clean on goal but failed to beat Petr Cech. Press Association “The three points was the most important thing today and it was good to keep a clean sheet. “It was a different game after we scored the first goal.” Swansea have now won only one of their last seven games and slipped one place to 13th on the back of this defeat. “It’s disappointing and we feel hard done by because there were a lot of positives,” Monk said after a fourth home game without success. “In the first half especially we were the better team, playing good football and creating good chances. “But the first two goals are disappointing and the mistakes we made you can’t do against anybody, let alone a side with the quality of Arsenal.” Monk insisted Swansea were hard done by both on the Koscielny goal and the Mertesacker handball incident. “I’ve seen fouls given pretty much every time when Fabianski comes, but the referee decided it wasn’t and perhaps Fab could have punched it. “I’ve played in many games where whenever the keeper is touched a foul is given, but I don’t expect things to go for us. “I also knew it was handball at the time but I couldn’t tell if it was intentional. But it clearly is, he moves his hand towards the ball to stop it. “So I feel for the players because we were much better, much more like ourselves.” Arsene Wenger admitted Arsenal had to overcome their Liberty Stadium anxiety before recording a fifth successive Barclays Premier League win. Monk also felt Swansea should have been awarded a first-half penalty when Per Mertesacker appeared to handle Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick, but Arsenal were clinical after the break as a controversial Laurent Koscielny effort and an emphatic Joel Campbell strike maintained the pressure on leaders Manchester City. “It’s always a difficult game here and last season they took six points from us,” Wenger said. “We were a bit edgy coming here and the first half was very difficult for us. “But in the second half there was tempo to our game and after we scored the first goal we were a different team. “I rested eight players on Tuesday (in the Capital One Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday) so it took us a while to get into the tempo of the game.” Koscielny doubled Arsenal’s lead after 68 minutes despite appearing to back into Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski when Hector Bellerin’s cross was deflected into the air. Fabianski was also challenged by Giroud but referee Kevin Friend felt no offence had been committed and Koscielny stabbed the loose ball home. “I didn’t see a foul, maybe I missed something and need to watch it,” Wenger said. last_img read more
